Ruger RSM .416 Rigby

@Sanglier14

That is an excellent price for several reasons.

The scope and mounts alone cost $us1,000; those are not standard Ruger rings- I believe they are Recnagel base & rings.

The stock is either a full custom or someone had the factory stock highly modified.

The bolt and extractor seem to have been jeweled.

Someone spent a lot of money to make an American rifle look European; and I think it’s nicely done.

This is indead complete custome made and removable Recnagel mounts.
 
I sold my Ruger Safari Magnum in 458 Lott last year . I paid $2000 for it in 2003 and sold it for $4500. I used it on several trips to NT and it took 6 buff . No runners . A very nice rifle once I added 3/4 of an inch to stock and a Kickeez pad . My sense is a 416 Rigby might be more in demand than the 458 . What I am seeing from auctions is the prices of 416 Rigby in CZ550 Safari and RSM’s going through the roof .

I'd agree that the 416 Rigby is likely the more popular choice in these rifles. More nostalgia, less recoil.
 
Mine is priced to sell quick $2600. I agree the value is above where I am priced.
@krish has an impressive battery of RSMs!

Bumping an old thread as I had a question:

Somewhere I saw a comment (cannot find it now) where someone lamented the Ruger RSM only held 2 rounds of .416 Rigby in the magwell making it a three shot gun.

Is that so? I assumed it was a 3+1 capacity?

I just ask as I'm trying to sell my 375 H&H RSM to get a .416 Rigby. My 375 holds 4 in the magwell and I assumed the Rigby would hold 3.

To answer your question, I loaded 416 Rigby rounds in Ruger RSM 416 Rigby. It takes 3 rounds in the magazine and I can close the bolt. No extra loading the chamber. If that info helps.
